The episode was sadly formulaic and predictable. I expected so much more from the first female doctor and the Holiday episode. There was such a strong desire to have consensus for every decision made that the Doctor written for Jody failed to step up as a leader. I believe that this is bad writing as I have seen her more convincing and more confident in other roles. The show would have been so much better had they written her just like any other doctor.
Occasional humor of a Timelord getting used to a new, female body would have been welcome but was non-existent except to show sexism throughout history. Humor and more science were needed. Oversensitive, contrived emotion was pumped in where timey-wimey, adventurous story telling used to be.
I watch Dr. Who for science fiction escapism and it is no longer fun and no longer serves this purpose. I have never cringed so much watching something in my life. Writing the doctor so weak when female shows that they don't understand strength or women in general. Being decisive is not a weakness. Being confident is not a weakness. I had hope that the show would improve after Capaldi left and it did not. Please fix this! ??
